9780143126126: North of Boston

Pirio Kasparov finds herself abandoned in the North Atlantic when the fishing boat she's on is rammed by a freighter. She somehow survives for nearly four hours in the freezing water before being rescued, but Pirio's friend, Ned, is not so lucky. He disappears without a trace. Pirio can't shake the suspicion that the boat's sinking was no accident, and begins to unravel a lethal plot that takes her to Northern Canada and the ice-cold waters of Baffin Bay. To survive, she must overcome a deadly betrayal from someone in her past, and, most importantly, learn to trust her own instincts above all else.

Elisabeth Elo's mesmerising novel introduces a gutsy heroine with a rare ability to withstand the extreme, and follows a dark and treacherous quest that brings to light some horrifying truths.

Review:

'This intense, slow-burning literary thriller, Elo's debut, paints a subtle portrait of a strong and believable heroine ... On this evidence Elo, a creative writing teacher in Boston, could well become a major force in the thriller world' ( Daily Mail)

'Loyal and tenacious Pirio is a marvellous protagonist. I can't wait to read more about her' ( Sun)

An utterly riveting debut thriller! Pirio Kasparov is one of the best protagonists I've read in years, tough, cynical, wry and compelling. Her determination to discover the truth behind her friend's murder will earn your admiration, while her growing desire to be a better daughter, friend, and person will win your heart (Lisa Gardner)

North of Boston is a gripping and unorthodox thriller, packed with intriguing characters and unexpected twists (Tom Perrotta)

I wish I had a friend like Pirio Kasparov - intelligent, loyal, brave, and funny. From the opening pages of North of Boston I was enthralled... What a terrific novel (Margot Livesey)

[An] outstanding debut (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description:

A powerful, page-turning thriller set in terrifying yet beautiful terrain, featuring a remarkable heroine. For fans of Dennis Lehane, Peter Hoeg's Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow and readers who love stories with a dark, gripping mystery at their heart.
